An error log is an in depth report of the warnings and error messages that website visitors encountered whilst they were browsing your website. This is the raw data that the hosting server has generated and it can help you find potential problems with your Internet site and solve them in a timely manner, in order to enhance the site’s functionality and to raise the users’ satisfaction. You can discover several things within an error log - the time when the error occurred, the actual path to the file that the website visitor couldn't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request could not be processed. There are various reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script site that cannot be processed adequately by the hosting server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and many others.

Error Log Viewer in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with our shared hosting accounts, will make it quite simple to generate and view an error log for any site that you have within your account. After you log in, you need to go to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the website that you would like to monitor. The button is available for every single domain name that you have hosted and every subdomain that you have set up, so you can get a detailed log for each of them individually, as a way to be able to check out the sites for problems a lot easier. A second click on the same button will disable the feature, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, which is available in the very same section. If needed, you can use software on your computer to process the raw server data for statistical purposes.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Enabling the generation of error logs for any of your sites will be rather easy if you are using a semi-dedicated server account on our cutting-edge website hosting platform. This requires a single click inside the Access/Error Logs section of our in-house built Hepsia CP, provided with the semi-dedicated accounts, so you don't need to have any previous experience with a hosting service. Our system will start gathering the raw data instantly and you could save it to your computer by simply clicking on the Download button, which is situated in the same exact section of the Control Panel. If you want to use human-readable charts and prepare efficiency reports, you can process the downloaded files with some software on your PC. The error log generation can be deactivated just as fast if you don't need reports for your sites.
